What are the requirements for temperature and humidity in microbiology laboratories?

Nov 08, 2018

What is the requirement for the temperature and humidity of the microbiological test room? I have seen in the book that the temperature scale is 20~25 degrees Celsius and the humidity scale is 45~60% RH. How is the master temperate at this scale?

The laboratory environment temperature and humidity control range is mainly determined from the following aspects. First, identify the requirements for ambient temperature and humidity for each job. Mainly identify the needs of the instrument, the needs of the reagents, the needs of the experimental procedure, and the humanization considerations of the laboratory staff (the human body feels comfortable at a temperature of 18-25 ° C relative humidity in the range of 35-80%, and from a medical point of view There is a certain causal relationship between dry environment and inflammation of the throat. The four aspects are comprehensively considered, and a list of requirements for temperature and humidity control is listed.

 

Second, select and develop an effective environmental temperature and humidity control range. Extract the narrowest range from the list of all requirements of the above elements as the allowable scope of the laboratory's environmental control, formulate management procedures for environmental condition control, and formulate reasonable and effective SOPs according to the actual situation of the department.

Third, maintain and monitor. Through various measures to ensure that the temperature and humidity of the environment are within the control range, and monitor and record the monitoring of the ambient temperature and humidity, take measures in time to exceed the allowable range, turn on the air conditioner to adjust the temperature, and open the dehumidifier to control the humidity.

Laboratory monitoring room:


Reagent chamber temperature 10-30 ° C, humidity 35-80%

Sample storage room temperature 10-30 ° C, humidity 35-80%

Balance chamber temperature 10-30 ° C, humidity 35-80%

Moisture chamber temperature 10-30 ° C, humidity 35-65%

Infrared room temperature 10-30 ° C, humidity 35-60%

Central laboratory temperature 10-30 ° C, humidity 35-80%

Sample chamber temperature 10-25 ° C, humidity 35-70%
